New Norcia Museum and Art Gallery
A little piece of Spain comes alive in this town, full of history, art and architecture. The town’s main attraction is the museum and art gallery. In the museum you will find extraordinary artefacts dating back to when New Norcia was an Aboriginal mission, a hub for farming and a diverse town for education and culture.
New Norcia Abbey Church and St Gertrude’s College
The Abbey Church is home to one of only two large Moser organs, originally crafted in Germany, this organ was imported to Australia in the 1920’s. Visit St Gertrude’s College, a grand gothic style building which was originally built as a girls boarding school and opened in 1908.
Nambung National Park
Home to the iconic Pinnacles Desert, Nambung National Park features an array of coastal dunes. Rich in flowering plants, this is a great spot where vegetation blooms in to flowers during the season.
These mystical limestone pillars make up one of Australia’s most unique landscapes, rising eerily out of the sand and reaching up to several metres tall. See the Pinnacles from the lookout over the park or take a guided walk through these amazing spires. If time permits be sure to make a visit to the Pinnacle Desert Discovery Centre to discover even more about these natural wonders.
Stop to view wildflowers throughout the tour whilst they are in season. Varieties include the orange flowering Christmas Tree, Kangaroo Paw, Banksia, Wattle and Everlastings.
